    1) With new Head Coach Rafael Perez, Desert Edge is going to make a splash in D3 this year and shouldn't be overlooked. Expect to see Desert Edge names in the rankings later in the season.

    They have a returning qualifier Korben Shuler 182, 11th. Korben took 2nd in AZ Cadet Freestyle 195, 3rd in Cadet Greco, and 4th in Cadet Regional Greco.

    They also picked up state qualifier Ivan Matherson 120, 11 from Buckeye in the off-season. Ivan took 2nd in AZ Freestyle, 1st in Greco.

    Expect Kody Ball 145/152 to be a top state placer in which ever weight he is at, he was injured just before sectionals last year. In 2017 was routinely placed in the top at tournaments. In 2016 he placed 6th at 138.

    Lookout for Kris Ciccarelli will be tough at 132, took 2nd in AZ Greco and placed 1st at the MWP tourney in Phoenix a couple of weeks ago.

    There are also 3-4 other wrestlers that should qualify for state if healthy.

    2) Gabe Gallegos from Desert Edge is out this year. He tore ligaments in his knee during freestyle in the spring and transferred back to Millennium.

    3)Abraham Rivera is at Buckeye now, but same section/division.

    I went ahead and mentioned your notes on particular affected weight classes. Keep up info coming everyone! Furthermore, I mentioned all wrestlers that made it to the state championships last year (all that didn't graduate). This was wrestlers with WINNING RECORDS only. As we see where these athletes fall into the weight categories / weight certifications... please post and I will adjust the original post accordingly.

    A lot of schedules are still being finalized. Best bet is to call to the school to be sure.
